How To SET & ACHIEVE Your Goals
The vast MAJORITY of people and businesses are struggling to ACHIEVE what they want today. Research shows it's the MINORITY , the few who are goals driven, who continuously set and achieve goals, who stand the best chance of success.
Goal achievement is a FIVE step process and the purpose of this site is to ensure you
a) know what the steps are and
b) know how to apply them to create your own success.
These five steps are as below.
If you have a goal you would really like to achieve NOW I suggest you work your way through each step ,one at a time.
The Five Steps To Accomplishing Your Goals
Step 1. Decide what you truly want.
All success starts with knowing what it is you want to be, have or do.
What is it that YOU want?
To lose weight? Travel the world? Write a book?
To earn more money? Be happy? Improve your business?
Whatever it is, your starting point is to identify it!
But what if you are not sure?
If you are not sure about what you want, get yourself a pen and paper and put some time aside to do an overall assessment of your life. This will give you a clearer handle on how your life looks right now and what needs to change.
If your life isn't how you want it to be don't worry - that's true for most of us. Just set some more quality thinking time aside, begin the process of change and create an alternative and exciting vision for your future.
When you have taken both of these steps, you will have a much clearer idea about what it is that you really want for your life and will be raring to go!
Step 2. Set a clear goal & write it down.
Once you know what you want, your next step is to transform what you want into a crystal clear goal.
You have a number of options to help you do this:
- If your goal is relatively straightforward you can use the highly popular 'smart goals' technique, or some other simple goal setting process, to set your goal.
On the other hand:
- If your goal is more complex and will require you to put in considerable effort, time, money or resources to achieve it, use the 'Smartest Goals Formula™'
The Smartest Goals Formula™ is a world class goal setting technique based on solid and extensive research.
Want to know the most important questions high achievers ask themselves right at the beginning of any new goal so that they DO NOT waste their time, money or resources? You'll learn that too.
Step 3. Get your unconscious mind onboard.
You must saturate BOTH your conscious mind and your unconscious mind with a clear picture of what it is you want to achieve – and you must keep that picture in mind every day!
You can do this in many different ways - vision boards, affirmations, mind movies....to name a few.
Choose the ways that most appeals to you. All are powerful.
Step 4. Have a plan & take massive action.
You have a clear goal and you have begun to visualise achieving your goal. The next step is to put together a practical plan and start to take action. Dreaming, wishing and thinking about your goal will never be enough.
To do this you must break your smart (or smartest goal) down.

Your smart goal may simply require you to copy tried and tested steps for the first time...
On the other hand it may require that you cross frontiers into brand new territory...
Whichever it is, you must pay close attention to the results that you are getting.
If what you are doing is working do more of it...
If what you are doing is not working then you need to be flexible, change your approach and try other ways...
You must LEARN along the way, it is part and parcel of all success, AND you must demonstrate lots of flexibility!
